GERANIUM - sanguineum Album / Cranesbill


    Geranium sanguineum Album, commonly known as white bloody cranesbill or white flowering geranium, is a perennial flowering plant that belongs to the Geraniaceae family. It is native to Europe and western Asia, and is widely grown for its delicate white flowers and low maintenance requirements.

    This plant typically grows to a height of 12-18 inches with a spread of 18-24 inches, forming a low mound of green, deeply lobed leaves. In late spring to early summer, it produces an abundance of pure white, five-petaled flowers with a slight pink tinge in the center. The flowers bloom profusely and continue to produce blooms throughout the summer months, making it an excellent choice for adding long-lasting color to the garden.

    Geranium sanguineum Album prefers well-draining soil and full sun to partial shade conditions, and is relatively drought tolerant once established. It is also deer-resistant, making it an ideal choice for gardens in areas with high deer populations. The plant is easy to grow and care for, requiring only occasional pruning to maintain its shape and to remove spent flowers.

    One of the standout features of Geranium sanguineum Album is its versatility in the garden. It is an excellent choice for use as a ground cover, border plant, or as part of a mixed perennial bed. It pairs well with other low-growing plants, such as sedum and creeping thyme, and is also a good choice for rock gardens.

    Overall, Geranium sanguineum Album is an excellent choice for gardeners who want a low-maintenance, long-blooming plant with delicate white flowers. Its adaptability and versatility make it a popular choice for a wide range of garden styles and settings, from cottage gardens to modern landscapes.
